Man Utd's Giggs happy to get on scoresheet in Cup win

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs was pleased to get on the scoresheet in their Carling Cup victory over Middlesbrough. With 764 appearances to his name, Giggs is edging his club record way beyond Sir Bobby Charlton to a level it is impossible to imagine anyone ever reaching. And his 145th goal - a delightful chip 11 minutes from time after Chris Riggott had stood on the ball - means he is just five short of becoming the ninth United player to reach the magic 150. "It was a nice goal," Giggs said of his latest effort.

"It was a nice goal," Giggs said of his latest effort.

"I made my mind up quite early. I knew what I was going to do as soon as I went through so all I had to do was stick to it."
